For the occasion, HandiCaPZéro has collected testimonials from several users who also told us about their experience with Ligue 1 Uber Eats and Ligue 2 BKT throughout the season.

Damien, supporter of SC Bastia
“I am a sports fan in general and love the guides provided by HandiCaPZéro. They allow me to read this link and keep it in Braille. When I have the opportunity to go watch a match on the field, a friend accompanies me describing the action of the match, and I admit that the atmosphere in the stadium remains a great moment.”

Frédéric, supporter of FC Nantes
“Since 2013 I have not missed a single braille guide. I order the versions of the two leagues which allows me to know the calendars and make teams on the same medium. Fan of Nantes, I sometimes go to the stadium. Most of the time I listen to the radio. Journalists make me really live the match!”

Laurent, supporter of Toulouse FC
«Visually impaired, I consult the content of the online guide regarding handicapzero.org Just like the live results section, I also have a fairly accessible app with pronunciation on my smartphone. I just learned that TFC has been providing a pitch audio description since its return to Ligue 1. I’ll go and test it out. I usually listen to meetings on the radio. Journalists describe the events of the game with enthusiasm. ”

Solin, a supporter of Paris Saint-Germain
“This guide is important to me and very useful for me to follow the tournament. It is well detailed and allows me to participate. I actually went this season to watch the matches at the Parc des Princes without an audio description. It was great for the atmosphere, a feeling I find when I listen to the Paris Saint-Germain matches. Germain on the radio. »

David, Rennes supporter
“I am a loyal fan of both guides, even if I support Stade Rennais. I find a lot of information there about other teams, about players I know less. Useful information for me to talk about football with sighted friends. I often watch matches on TV with a sighted friend Describes to me the attitude of some players, the color of their shirt! For me, the energy of the commentators sets the tone and my perceptions of the match. It changes everything.”

Pascal, supporter of Olympique de Marseille
“I download the Ligue 1 audio guide from the site handicapzero.org. I watch the entire tournament while supporting OM! I hope to attend a meeting at Vélodrome in an audio description this season, in the meantime listening to the matches thanks to an influencer whose comments were very lively. »

Riowen, En Avant Guingamp supporter
“Being a Guingamp fan, I appreciate that the guide is also available for Ligue 2, which is often less well known, and hard to find information. There is no audio description at Guingamp Stadium but I go there mainly for the ambiance in a cup with the fans. To comment, when I’m not in the stadium listening to the radio. »

The publication of these two guides is part of the dynamic that is being taken towards persons with disabilities. In order to improve the accessibility of sports stadiums, the French Football Federation, in collaboration with the French Football Federation and the French Federation of Disabled Football Fans (FFSFH), joined the Erasmus+ project “Good governance needs access and inclusion” in February 2021.

This program led by CAFE (Access to Football in Europe) brings together Belgian and German counterparts (national federations, professional associations and associations of supporters with disabilities), as well as the Portuguese university ENSILIS.

The first phase of the project resulted in the launch of a major survey of Belgian, French and German supporters with disabilities. The aim of this survey, which was conducted in November 2021, was to provide an in-depth understanding of the current state of accessible and inclusive services in each country’s stadiums and the different barriers these regions face.

These results have enabled the association to develop a long-term strategy and identify priority actions to be put in place to improve access and inclusion in the Ligue 1 Uber Eats and Ligue 2 BKT competitions.

Five main priorities have been identified to facilitate access to French professional football:

Make tickets easier
Giving better access to information
Facilitating access to and entry to the stadium
Improve access to services
Comprehensive Experience Guarantee

Several actions have been proposed for each of these areas. This National Action Plan was presented to CAFE and ENSILIS at the end of May in London by the FFF, FFSFH and LFP; It will be shared with German and Belgian partners in mid-October during a workshop in Lisbon.

It would then be a matter of sharing this national plan with all disability references for professional football clubs and the FFF (or DAO – Access Officer for the Disabled in the UEFA term). Sharing the best practices identified in Europe thanks to the Erasmus+ programme, in particular in relation to the ticketing aspect for example, will make it possible to make recommendations that are viable and achievable by all.

A second survey will be launched in November 2023, a year later, to measure the impact of the strategy and the close cooperation between federations, associations, and associations of disabled supporters. This will make it possible to compare positions and evaluate improvement.

Workshops will also be organized in each of the three countries to identify and exchange best practices at the European level on various topics. The first was held on September 22 at the Stade de France.

This Erasmus+ project will act as a pilot and will develop an action plan and set of support tools for other National Societies, Leagues and Supporter Groups with Disabilities across Europe and beyond, in order to implement similar measures in their countries.
